It’s possible to enable DNS forwarding using BIND and including reverse lookup for the zone. Once you are done with the config of a basic bind server, all you need to do is configure "/etc/bind/named.conf.options and conf.local" with the following options and restart the service.

In this example we have got 2 DNS server's resolving.

SERVER1 = = domain : HM.LOCAL : IP:

SERVER 2 = = domain : DEV.LOCAL :IP:

We need to resolve local requests for "hm.local" on SERVER 1 and forward any "dev.local" domain requests (forward and reverse lookups) to SERVER 2 and hence need to configure SERVER 1  to achieve this.

To start with add the zone dev.local to "/etc/bind/named.conf.local" and add the forward zone to the config file.

If you can't spend thousands for a static IP, Try out this script which sends out an email alert whenever Public IP address changes. In a situation where you need a VPN solution without spending thousands on a static IP no matter if you are a HOME user or a Small Business owner, all you need to have is a RasberryPi and a decent Small Business VPN Router. For this article I used a Cisco RV110w VPN Router.
